Dreaming Of A White Christmas

  • 5 of 5

Back in early March, 2016 my wife started talking about gathering the family for a Christmas mountain retreat. After looking at the Idyllwild postings we decided to contact David to book his property. We couldn't be happier with the results! From first contact through the day after Christmas when we left, David made sure we were well taken care of. And to top things off, a storm blew into the area and dropped 5"-6" of fresh snow just in time for the Christmas celebration. Over the weekend David called a couple of times to confirm everything was going smoothly. On the morning we were scheduled to leave there was still major snow accumulation in the driveway. David told me not to worry about shoveling to get the cars out, he would call a plow - which he did. A few hours later the driveway was cleared and we were able to pack and drive away.....sadly. Everyone in the family expressed having a wonderful holiday experience and were wondering aloud if this was going to start a new family tradition. Thank you David for being an excellent host!

Love coming back!

  • 5 of 5

This year was our third stay at this family home - and we are thrilled that it is part of our family tradition. We stay very comfortably with 6 adults and 4 children. We love playing games at the fireplace, the pool table, and spending time together at the large dining table. David is incredibly connected and accessible, and we are very grateful for the opportunity to share this wonderful home.

Awesome rental!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at this house several times, and will certainly be back!!! It's spacious yet cozy. The kids (and adults) love the family room with the pool table. The music room with the grand piano is beautiful. It's the perfect property for a larger group. The outdoor space is super nice, too - great in the summer for lounging around, sitting under the stars. The owner David is super nice and easy to work with. Never do we have any problems or issues. Already looking to book our next trip!

amazing home!

  • 5 of 5

we just spent two magical days at Davids cabin. this home is truly a work of art in every way. we were a party of 5 families which can be a lot to manage when all together in the same house but because of the way the home is laid out people could be doing separate activities in different areas of the house without crossing over into other areas. It also has a lovely dinning area with table extensions that allowed us all to eat together at the same table which was a real treat.

all this combined with a great outdoor area and proximity to town etc. made for a lovely retreat from the city..

We will definitely be going back!

Wonderful family cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This sprawling cabin couldn't be a nicer place to spend a family vacation. It is replete with every homey furnishing you could hope for and some you didn't realize you wanted: the kitchen is stocked with appliances, the game shelves are full, and there isn't a classical record missing from the collection. While there is an old-fashioned feel befitting a family cabin in the forest, the television is probably nicer than yours (it was nicer than ours, anyway!) and the wireless internet is fast. Everything is clean and works well. The location is great - close enough to walk to town and a fast drive to lots of hikes and the Nature Center. Perfect!
